Boban believes Milan won’t win the Scudetto: “Something is still missing”

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan have started the season in almost the best way possible with 19 points after the first seven games. Only Napoli are ahead and the Rossoneri are to be reckoned with in the Scudetto race, but not if you ask Zvone Boban. 

Stefano Pioli has done a fantastic job with this Milan side and they will be looking to continue their unbeaten run after the international break. Napoli are two points ahead but the season is far from over yet.

In an interview with SportWeek, the weekly edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport, Milan legend and former director Boban was asked about their chances of winning the Scudetto. He believes that they are still missing something to make it.

“If Milan can aim for the Scudetto? I don’t think so, something is still missing. To be among the big clubs in Europe, 25-30% is missing, to be found in the quality of the players in certain positions and experience-wise in the Champions League. Favourite for the Scudetto? I say Napoli, then Inter. They have something more than the others. Obviously, I don’t exclude Milan as an option,” he stated.

It remains to be seen if Boban is right, but it’s safe to say that the Rossoneri have started the season very well. If they can continue like this, then they can go all the way and bring home the Scudetto.

  1. Inter admittedly have the strongest squad, but if Milan can avoid too much injury grief and recruit well in Jan, there’s no reason why they can’t have a tilt at the title.

    1. I wouldn’t agree less with your statement, injuries last season dealt us a huge blow and was a valid reason why we missed out on the trophy.

      The medical team should up their game.

      A couple more decent player recruitment in January should do the job

  2. I think Napoli have pretty short bench. They will struggle soon. Pretty similar to Lazio from many points.
    Inter is way weaker than last season.
    We are much stronger than last season, more confident, better defense, better offense.
    Boban must be just talking from his own troubles with Elliots.

    1. No vzominir boban this is your opinion but I think Milan is fouvorite for this title confier to last season enjury and no quality subtitute cost

  3. We lost the scudetto because of the Mediocre Coach Pioli who is not a winner.

    Milan is stronger than Napoli, Inter and Juve this season.

    To be just 2 points off the top of the table without having the best players available says a lot about the Rossoneri Team.

    Ibra, Giroud, Bakayoko, Krunic are virtually absent so far.

    And we had to recover Bennacer, Kessie, Kjaer, Calabria etc slowly from Injuries within the period.

    Boban is just bitter about Elliot

    1. Boban’s statement is far from the truth. The true favourite is rather Milan. Milan had been without some key players for sometime now but still winning. It means Milan has good bench. Good team comes from good bench. And the scudeto is won when it has good bench to cover for injury, suspension, stress etc..
